The 2013–14 season is the 128th in the history of Luton Town Football Club and the club’s fifth consecutive season in non-League football following a mid-table finish in the 2012–13 campaign. In manager John Still's first full season in charge, Luton won promotion to the Football League and were crowned Conference Premier champions.

This article covers the period from 1 July 2013 to 30 June 2014.

Background[edit]

After two unsuccessful attempts for promotion back to The Football League in the 2009–10 and 2010–11 seasons, Luton dismissed manager Gary Brabin and appointed Paul Buckle in April 2012 in an attempt to reach the play-offs as the 2011–12 campaign drew to a close. Buckle oversaw five wins in eight games as Luton reached the play-off final, though ultimately lost to York City.[1][2] Buckle quickly began moulding his own team for the 2012–13 season, releasing 14 players and signing eight new ones, although two signings in the form of Garry Richards and Danny Spiller did not play a single game as they both suffered long-term injuries. The club started the season well, and was one point from the top of the table after the first third of the season. However, the club's league form soon nosedived and they went on to win only three league games over the course of the next four months. Victories over higher-league opponents Wolverhampton Wanderers and Norwich City in the FA Cup gave some respite, but "genuine personal reasons" saw Paul Buckle leave the club in February. Under his replacement, John Still, performances and results gradually picked up to culminate in a late five-game unbeaten run, but the club could not challenge for a play-off finish and ended the season in a club-record low of seventh place.[3]

Still began his own rebuilding of the squad a month before the last game of the season by releasing six players.[4] He later released three more, transfer listed five others, and then signed players he had either worked with or scouted previously at Dagenham & Redbridge in the form of Solomon Taiwo, Scott Griffiths, Alex Wall and Elliot Justham.[5][6][7][8][9] Defender Anthony Charles, who had won the Conference with two other clubs, and Hull City striker Mark Cullen also joined the club in the close-season.[10][11] Still committed existing players to new contracts, with goalkeeper Mark Tyler, defender Steve McNulty, midfielders Matt Robinson and Dave Martin, and player of the season Alex Lawless signing new deals.[12][13][14][15][16]

Review[edit]

July[edit]

The opening of the transfer window on 1 July saw Southport players Andy Parry and Shaun Whalley sign for undisclosed fees, and out-of-contract Histon duo Danny Fitzsimons and Jim Stevenson also join the club.[17][18] Striker Dan Walker joined Hereford United on a free transfer.[19] Transfer-listed goalkeeper Dean Brill moved on loan to Scottish Premier League side Inverness Caledonian Thistle on 2 July until January 2014.[20] Injured midfielder Danny Spiller and transfer-listed defender Simon Ainge both had their contracts terminated by the club on 4 July.[21] In addition to changes in the playing staff, there were also alterations to the backroom team, as first team coach Alan Neilson left to be replaced by Grays Athletic manager Hakan Hayrettin on 5 July. Long-serving goalkeeping coach Dmitri Kharine also left the club.[22][23] Kharine was ultimately replaced in the role by Jeff Wood.[24] Later in the month, Luton signed former Northampton Town midfielder Luke Guttridge on a free transfer. The 31-year old signed a two-year contract.[25]

Luton's first team played a number of local friendly matches, winning two and losing one, before hosting Premier League club Aston Villa at Kenilworth Road on 23 July. Luton beat their higher-level opponents 2–0 with goals from Jon Shaw and Jake Howells.[26] This was followed up with a 3–0 win four days later over League Two side Dagenham & Redbridge.[27]

August[edit]

Luton's first team ended pre-season with a 7–0 win over Arsenal Reserves on 3 August.[28] Ronnie Henry was confirmed as the club's captain for the second season in a row.[29]

Luton lost 1–0 to Southport on the opening day of the season on 10 August, with Shaun Whalley missing a penalty and Steve McNulty being sent off in the second half.[30] After video evidence contradicted the referee's assessment of violent conduct, McNulty's red card was overturned on appeal in time for the match against Salisbury City three days later.[31] Luton won the game 2–0, which was then followed by a 1–1 draw with Macclesfield Town on 17 August where Luke Guttridge scored deep into injury time.[32][33] Luton then drew 0–0 in consecutive matches with title favourites Forest Green Rovers and league leaders Cambridge United to leave themselves in 14th place in the table. John Still acknowledged his side's lack of goals in their opening five games and, combined with injuries to strikers Mark Cullen, Jon Shaw and Alex Wall, he signed prolific forward Paul Benson on a season-long loan from League One club Swindon Town on 26 August.[34][35] Shaw underwent an operation for a hernia a few days after Benson signed, ruling him out for six weeks.[36] Luton ended August with a 2–0 win away to Kidderminster Harriers, Jake Howells scoring two penalties, placing the club into eleventh in the table.[37]

September[edit]

Transfer-listed defender Lathaniel Rowe-Turner joined fellow-Conference team Alfreton Town on loan until January 2014 on the day of the transfer deadline.[38] Youth team graduates Jerome Jibodu and Jake Woolley both joined Conference South side Boreham Wood on three-month loans on 6 September.[39] Scott Rendell then joined Woking on loan a week later.[40]

Luton drew 0–0 for the third time in four games on 7 September with a stalemate against Grimsby Town.[41] They then lost 2–0 at Wrexham on 13 September with Alex Wall sent off late on.[42] The previous season's player of the year Alex Lawless made his first start on 17 September upon returning from injury, inspiring Luton to a 3–0 win over Dartford in which he scored one goal and set up another.[43]

After impressing in youth team and development squad games, 17-year-old striker Zane Banton signed a two-year professional contract with the club on 19 September.[44] Striker Mark Cullen scored his first two goals for the club in a 3–2 home win over Lincoln City on 21 September.[45] Cullen scored two more, with Alex Lacey scoring his first for the club and Andre Gray his first of the season, in a 4–0 win over Woking on 24 September.[46] Luton ended the month with a 0–0 draw away to Hereford United, putting the club into sixth place in the table.[47] The club signed French-Portuguese midfielder David Viana on a contract until the end of the season on 30 September. Viana had impressed John Still while on trial, scoring two goals in development games.[48]

October[edit]

On 4 October, young defender Brett Longden joined Boreham Wood on a one-month loan. Striker Jake Woolley returned from his own loan at Boreham Wood after less than a month.[49] Luton beat FC Halifax Town 4–3 on 5 October, coming from 3–1 down to win the game with a 25-yard goal from Alex Wall late on.[50] The team then drew 3–3 away at Aldershot Town on 8 October to move into fourth position in the table.[51] A hat-trick from Andre Gray and a goal from Luke Guttridge saw Luton beat basement club Hyde 4–1 on 12 October to extend their unbeaten run to seven games.[52] Injured defender Garry Richards, who was yet to make an appearance for the club since signing in the summer of 2012, was released from his contract on 14 October and announced his retirement from football soon after.[53] Jake Woolley joined Southern League Premier Division club St Neots Town on a one-month loan the same day.[54] The club were involved in another high-scoring game on 19 October, winning 4–3 away to Tamworth with two goals from Paul Benson and long-range strikes from Jonathan Smith and Andy Parry.[55]

Luton progressed into the First Round of the FA Cup on 26 October with a 1–0 away win over Woking.[56]

November[edit]

The club returned to league games on 2 November, drawing 0–0 with Gateshead in weather described by manager John Still as "as bad conditions as I can remember a team playing in".[57] Luton were knocked out of the FA Cup on 9 November at the First Round stage, going down 2–1 away to Welling United.[58] On-loan goalkeeper Dean Brill was released from his Luton contract on 12 November in order to join Inverness CT on a permanent deal.[59] The same day saw Luton move to second in the table, seven points behind leaders Cambridge United, with a 2–1 victory over Braintree Town.[60] The club then extended their unbeaten league run to 11 games as they drew 1–1 away to Chester on 16 November.[61]

Winger Dave Martin joined Dartford on a one-month loan on 18 November.[62] Luton played their first home game in seven matches on 23 November, winning 2–1 against Welling United after Andre Gray scored both goals.[63] This was followed up with a 3–0 home win over Southport on 26 November, with defender Steve McNulty scoring a "spectacular" 25-yard volley.[64]

On 28 November, injuries to defenders Anthony Charles, Alex Lacey, Andy Parry and Steve McNulty, coupled with the impending closure of the loan transfer window, saw the club act to sign three defenders on loan: Joe Davis arrived from Port Vale, Alfie Mawson from Brentford, and Pelly Ruddock, who was also able to play in midfield, from West Ham United. In addition, midfielders JJ O'Donnell and Jim Stevenson, who had featured in only a handful of games, were sent on loan to Hyde and Dartford respectively. All five loans were agreed until 4 January.[65] A youthful Luton side, which included Davis and Ruddock alongside four youth team players, drew 0–0 with Staines Town in the First Round of the FA Trophy on 30 November.[66]

December[edit]

Luton won their FA Trophy replay against Staines Town on 3 December, setting up a Second Round tie at home to Wrexham.[67] The club then equalled their biggest ever away win with a 5–0 victory at Alfreton Town in the league on 7 December. Four goals in just eight minutes, two from Andre Gray and one each from Paul Benson and Luke Guttridge, left Luton 4–0 up at half-time, and an Alex Lawless goal in the second half completed the scoring.[68] A Luton side featuring a number of youth team players beat FA Trophy holders Wrexham 2–0 on 14 December to progress to the Third Round.[69] The club then won their ninth home game in a row on 21 December, beating Gateshead 4–2 to move just one point behind league leaders Cambridge United.[70] Managing Director Gary Sweet confirmed the same day that John Still had signed a contract extension to 2015 with the condition that, for each promotion the club won, an additional year would be added to the contract.[71]

The club made it 16 league games unbeaten with a 2–1 away victory over Barnet on Boxing Day. The win was, however, overshadowed by a serious injury to Jonathan Smith, who fractured both his right tibia and fibula.[72] Out of favour midfielder Arnaud Mendy was released by the club on 27 December.[73]

Despite the setback of potentially losing Smith for the rest of the campaign, Luton went on to record their then-biggest victory of the season on 28 December by defeating Kidderminster Harriers 6–0 in front of 8,488 people at Kenilworth Road, which moved the club into first place in the table. Luke Guttridge and substitute Jake Howells scored two apiece, with goals also coming from Paul Benson and a first for the club by full-back Scott Griffiths.[74] Luton's run of six victories throughout December was recognised with John Still winning the Manager of the Month award and striker Paul Benson winning Player of the Month.[75] On 30 December, midfield loanee Pelly Ruddock was recalled early by his parent club West Ham United to cover their injury crisis.[76]

January[edit]

Luton began 2014 with a 2–1 home victory over Barnet, their seventh consecutive league win, in wet conditions on New Year's Day that almost saw the game abandoned.[77] With midfielders in short supply at the club, John Still moved on 3 January to sign Peterborough United's Kane Ferdinand on loan until the end of the season.[78] Luton equalled a long-standing club record of 19 league games unbeaten after drawing 0–0 away to Lincoln City on 4 January.[79]

Following the completion of the loans of defenders Joe Davis and Alfie Mawson, Luton moved to sign Crystal Palace centre-back Ryan Inniss on a one-month loan on 10 January.[80] Inniss scored five minutes into his debut as Luton drew 2–2 with Cambridge United in the FA Trophy on 11 January.[81] In the replay three days later, Luton lost 1–0 – their first home defeat of the season – and were knocked out of the competition at the Third Round.[82] The club signed Norwich City's FA Youth Cup winning captain Cameron McGeehan on a 28-day youth loan on 16 January.[83] The next day saw a busy period of transfer activity, as Welling United defender Fraser Franks was signed for an undisclosed fee on a contract until July 2015, while fringe players Alex Wall and JJ O'Donnell were loaned out to Dartford and Gateshead respectively for one month.[84][85][86]

Luton's home game against Wrexham on 18 January was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.[87] Winger Shaun Whalley joined Conference North side AFC Telford United on a one-month loan on 23 January.[88] Luton played their first league game in three weeks on 25 January, winning 3–0 against Nuneaton Town courtesy of an Andre Gray hat-trick and stretching their unbeaten league run to 20 games; a new club record.[89]

On 28 January, former loanee Pelly Ruddock signed permanently for Luton from West Ham United on a two-and-a-half year contract for an undisclosed fee, in a transfer described as a "major coup".[90] On the same day, Luton signed versatile left-sided player Jernade Meade on loan until the end of the season from Swansea City.[91] Transfer-listed striker Scott Rendell mutually agreed for his contract to be terminated on 30 January, and he later joined Woking.[92] JJ O'Donnell and Jim Stevenson extended their loans at Gateshead and Dartford until the end of the season later that day.[93][94] The last day of the transfer window saw midfielder Solomon Taiwo, who had struggled with injury throughout the season, join Aldershot Town on a one-month loan.[95]

February[edit]

Luton's match away at Dartford, scheduled for 1 February, was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.[96] With no improvement in weather conditions, the club's home match against Tamworth on 8 February was also postponed.[97] The club played their first game in 16 days on 11 February away at Macclesfield Town, who were behind only Luton in terms of the league's in-form teams. Luton won the match 2–1 with two goals from Andre Gray, though were indebted to goalkeeper Mark Tyler for a number of important saves.[98][99]

On 13 February, 17-year-old midfielder Ian Rees signed a professional contract with the club until the end of the 2014–15 season.[100]

Luton recorded their biggest win of the season on 15 February, thrashing Hereford United 7–0 at Kenilworth Road. An Andre Gray hat-trick and goals from Paul Benson, Jake Howells, Pelly Ruddock and Alex Lawless placed the club nine points clear at the top of the table.[101] Midfielder Cameron McGeehan extended his loan from Norwich City until the end of the season on 18 February, while Alex Wall's loan at Dartford was extended for a further month.[102][103]

The club continued their goalscoring form, winning 5–0 at Nuneaton Town on 22 February and then 5–0 again at home to Wrexham three days later, which took their goal difference to +55.[104][105] Four wins from four games throughout the month, which saw nineteen goals scored and only one conceded, led to John Still winning the Manager of the Month award.[106] Andre Gray's seven goals in four games saw him named as the Conference Premier Player of the Month.[106]

March[edit]

The club beat play-off chasing side Alfreton Town 3–0 on 1 March to maintain their 14-point lead at the top of the table.[107] Youth team graduates Zane Banton, Brett Longden and Ian Rees were loaned out to Conference South sides in early March; Longden joined Maidenhead United, while both Banton and Rees signed for Concord Rangers.[108][109]

Luton drew 0–0 away to Salisbury City on 8 March to secure a fifth consecutive clean sheet.[110] A short trip to nearest title challengers Cambridge United then followed on 11 March. Luton went 1–0 down – the first time they had been in a losing position in a league game since October – but a late equaliser from substitute Mark Cullen resulted in a 1–1 draw and left the club 15 points clear at the top of the table.[111] Luton then lost their first league game in almost six months – a run stretching 27 matches – on 17 March at home to Woking. The club lost 1–0 in a game that Woking dominated for large periods.[112]

The club signed winger Luke Rooney on a contract until the end of the season on 21 March. Rooney had previously been playing for Maidstone United on non-contract terms following his release from League One side Swindon Town in late 2013.[113] The club allowed transfer-listed defender Lathaniel Rowe-Turner to rejoin Alfreton Town on loan until the end of the season, while also extending the loan of the in-form Alex Wall at Dartford by a further month.[114][115]

Luton then won their first game for over three weeks, beating Chester 3–0 on 22 March with goals from Matt Robinson, Andre Gray and Paul Benson.[116] The club then made it 15 consecutive away league games unbeaten with a 2–1 win at play-off chasing Grimsby Town three days later, with Robinson and Benson again on the scoresheet.[117] The club's away record ended on 29 March with a 2–0 defeat to in-form FC Halifax Town.[118]

April[edit]

Luton signed striker Andrew Mangan on loan from Forest Green Rovers on 1 April; the paperwork had been completed a week before when the loan transfer window was open, but a contractual issue had prevented Mangan from signing until April.[119] The club secured victory over Dartford that evening, coming from a goal behind to win 2–1 with late goals from Pelly Ruddock and Andre Gray.[120] The result left Luton needing three wins from their remaining six games to be assured of promotion.

On 3 April, young centre-back Alex Lacey signed a two-year contract extension.[121]

Luton won 1–0 against Aldershot Town on 5 April, with Cameron McGeehan scoring his first goal for the club, and then followed this up with a 2–0 victory over Tamworth three days later.[122][123] McGeehan netted again and Mark Cullen was also on the scoresheet, his eighth goal of the season, to leave Luton on the cusp of returning to the Football League.

Luton missed their opportunity to confirm promotion on their own terms, losing 3–2 at home to Braintree Town on 12 April in an incident-filled game played front of the biggest number of Luton fans at Kenilworth Road in over 20 years.[124] However, on 15 April, a 2–0 defeat for nearest rivals Cambridge United to Kidderminster Harriers meant that Luton were mathematically confirmed as Conference Premier champions with three league games left to play, and would contest the next season in League Two.[125]

A youthful Luton side then beat Welling United 2–1 on 19 April, the club's eleventh away league victory of the season.[126]
